Mouse monitoring a must to reduce crop damage risk.. NMMWG chair Ian Hastings says that monitoring must continue to occur on a paddock-by-paddock basis and growers should be prepared to bait immediately after sowing where higher than normal activity is identified. ".. Some breeding has been occurring and in those areas where mice caused significant damage last year or where paddocks are at high risk, considerable precautions must be taken."..

The new app designed by the Invasive Animals CRC helps people to identify introduced vertebrate pests and to choose the most appropriate control measures... Project leader Peter West says the app features the 56 most damaging introduced pests including recent arrivals such as the Indian ringnecked parakeet, an aviary bird that is now appearing in the wild... The app includes: descriptions of each species and a map of their geographic range; photo galleries of animals and their tracks or droppings (where relevant); audio recordings of animal calls; and links to other pest control resources such as the PestSmart Toolkits, also produced by the Invasive Animals CRC...

An emerging sunflower crop affected by slugs.. We also had issues with preventing the airflow in the seeder blowing the lighter baits off target and stubble impeding the bait placement making it harder for slugs to find the baits.".. Mr Pilkington believes the application at sowing made a huge difference to bait placement accuracy and the residue managers on the precision planter helped with putting baits onto clear ground for the slugs to find...

A snail bait distribution trial on Yorke Peninsula in 2013 tested the coverage of various spreaders and found that on average coverage was two-thirds of that expected with urea... Recent rains across much of south-eastern Australia have led growers to look at controlling snails and slugs due to an increase in their activity, meaning now is the ideal time to spread bait... "Research is still continuing into the effects of fragmented baits, but it is unlikely that these smaller fragments would contain a lethal dose, so I would recommend that when growers do their calibration run, they look for fragmentation - where instead of baits there are small crumbs - and increase the dose assuming that those baits are no longer effective...

The University of Melbourne's Dr Michael Nash says slug trials in the past year have shown baiting is still the best option for chemical control and grain growers should not skimp on bait rates... Dr Nash says growers must closely monitor crops after rain when conditions are moist and favourable for slugs, particularly in areas affected by the pests in the past... Speaking at the recent GRDC Adviser Updates series in the southern region, Dr Nash says baiting success depends on the chances a slug will encounter individual baits, which is influenced by slug activity, attractiveness of the bait and the number of baits...
